@sglassme @sglassmeyer Now, I do nasal rinse 2x day, and allergy pill, and Flonase 1x. Allergies are gone and if I do get sick it lasts a week, like a normal person.

@natalalleycat Wasn’t this a part of Bates v Arizona? The Bar argued that Bates couldn’t advertise services that consumers could do themselves (e.g. name change). I can’t remember how SCOTUS ruled on this particular question but Bates obviously came down against the Bar.
